“Mary demonstrates true faith- trusting in God’s promises, His character, and His action.”

December 22, 2019

Christmas is a season to ask: what do I really believe? In the story of the Nativity Mary shows us what true faith looks like. She yields herself to God’s promises and holds fast to them. She trusts in God’s character even when those promises are hard to believe. And she remembers God’s action that affirms the trustworthiness of God’s promises and character.

  3. How does knowing God’s character bolster and affirm your faith?
  4. What are five ways that you have seen God work in your life that give you confidence in His action?
